    Cook 6 - saw off the new ball but again failed to go on but captaincy was excellent
    Lyth N/A
    Bell 1
    Root 10 - he's magic
    Bairstow 7 - not the best innings but that partnership was what took us from comfortable to the Aussies needing a miracle to get back in the game
    Stokes 8 - purely rating as a bowler. Disappointing again with the bat
    Buttler 3 - disappointing
    Ali 5 - nice innings and great beard
    Broad 11 - pretty good
    Wood 5 - figures look better for cleaning up the tail but hey it got the job done
    Finn 4 - a slight worry that he couldn't back it up from the last match but looked good Dorsey innings

    Rogers 5 - gave it a go at putting a fight in second time round
    Warner 4 - as above but loses a mark for stupidity
    Smith 1 - will have better days
    Marsh N/A
    Clarke 2
    Voges 5 - showed some fight second dig that may just earn him another go
    Neville 3 - don't leave straight ones hey
    Johnson 4 - wasn't awful but not really a threat
    Starc 8 - don't feel he should be punished just because the batsman gave him nothing to defend. Top class
    Hazelwood 2 - poor
    Lyon 2 - as above

    Cook 6 - Looks in good form but didn't go on again. Hope at Lords he gets that big score he looks like he could have in him.
    Lyth 1 - Looked bad again, he'll get the Oval but if he fails he would likely be dropped. That said Alex Hales is 84* in a fairly low scoring game currently.
    Bell 2 - Got a great one early, caught well but then shelled a hard one.
    Root 10 - Amazing.
    Bairstow 7 - Rode his luck, and still fighting against his technique but great timer of the ball and can help take the game away from opposition quickly. Buttler should be worried.
    Stokes 9 - Second innings bowling was brilliant, extremely high quality and his catching is amazing.
    Buttler 3 - Technical flaw to anything pitched up and kept poorly. He still has loads of talent, but if Bairstow puts a few scores together would raise interesting questions.
    Ali 5 - Gave it a belt but bowling more like a part timer at the moment. Wonder if Rashid might get a look.
    Broad 10 - All time great first innings.
    Wood 6 - He bowls some filth but when he gets it right he is a real handful, said it a few times but not sure him/Finn can be in the same side at the moment.
    Finn 5 - His second spell last night was fantastic. Dry, accurate and a handful. He and Wood need to sort out that no ball **** though.

    Rogers 4 - Needed a lot of luck to survive, and never looked set for a big one.
    Warner 4 - Looked terrible, and kept going at the ball and edging + that ****ing dire lap pull thing.
    Smith 2 - Got a good one early 1st innings, great catch in 2nd but a horror dismissal 2nd dig.
    Marsh 0 - Shambles. Plonks foot down pitch and tries to drive a ball away from his body x2.
    Clarke 2 - Looked terrible first dig, then worst dismissal you will see. He fought in 2nd innings which I credit.
    Voges 5 - Happy he got runs, applied himself well and a bit unlucky to get out to a catch like that
    Neville 2 - I am a fan, liked him at Brum but he looked hopeless here.
    Johnson 3 - Got flogged and rarely threatened.
    Starc 7 - Will be a great bowler once he finds that channel around off stump consistently.
    Hazelwood 1 - Four balls galore. Not what was advertised yet.
    Lyon 2 - Hard for spinners especially defending a low score, but feel like England have started to work him about easier last few innings.

    Cook - 5 - hasn't had a great run of scores, but hasn't looked like he's in dog**** form at all. He's just finding ways to get out when set.
    Lyth - 1 - I'm honestly delighted when he gets double figures
    Bell - 1 - poor again
    Root - 10 - troll batting. Love him.
    Bairstow - 7 - solid effort, will be gutted at throwing away a ton
    Stokes - 8 - great bowling 2nd innings.
    Buttler - 5 - kept well, batted terribly
    Moeen - 6 - lovely troll innings just to rub it in.
    Broad - 10 - holy **** what a display. Wouldn't get into India's strongest XI though.
    Wood - 6 - I like him but he's not quite all there. Sort out your no balls, you're running in from about 3 feet away, how are you overstepping?
    Finn - 5 - couldn't repeat his Edgbaston heroics but didn't need to

    Australia

    Rogers - 0 - poor dismissal, 2nd innings runs were completely irrelevant
    Warner - 0 - got a pretty decent nut to be fair. 2nd innings runs were completely irrelevant
    Smith - 0 - poor dismissal, rendering the 2nd innings irrelevant
    Clarke - 0 - a dismissal that looked terrible but I can understand the thought process behind it.
    Marsh - 0 - might as well not have bothered.
    Voges - 0 - another crap dismissal. Fighting knock in the 2nd dig that was ultimately irrelevant
    Nevill - 0 - at least ensured that the tradition of hilarious leaves will be carried on after Clarke's retirement announcement
    Johnson - 1 - bowled poorly, at least made an attempt to bat properly, shaming his top order colleagues in the process.
    Starc - 5 - still yet to work out how to bowl ok stuff.
    Hazelwood - 0 - rubbish. Supposed to be the "new McGrath", the original would still be a better option. Would be as well sending for his American Pie lookalike Paul Finch
    Lyon - 2 - hard when you're defending **** all

    I'd be interested in a serious argument against it. One of the worst collectively displays of batting I have ever had the pleasure of watching.

    Because getting out to one good ball doesn't constitute a 0 overall match rating.

    Playing bad shots to good bowling merits a 0.

    Broad's spell was insanely good but when a bowler's on song and the ball's moving a bit, leave the ****ing thing alone. Don't go at it with hard hands and play miles away from your body. Most certainly don't do it when you're 3 down inside 2 overs for **** sake.

    Don't really think Rogers and Warner deserve 0. They got good nuts IMO rather than flashing at balls outside off, and they did score runs second dig.

    Warner's probably the only top 7 bat that was unlucky. The fact they scored some runs in the 2nd innings is not relevant given that a) they got bowled out for 60 on the first morning and b) they failed to make England bat again anyway.

    But he's still a **** so it's a 0.

    Cook 5 - had the decency not to bore us with his batting for too long
    Lyth 10 - a walking wicket
    Bell 10 - see Lyth
    Root 0 - he scores too many runs and seems like a good bloke WAC
    Bairstow -1 - trolled us for 74 despite not knowing which end of the bat to hold and is a ranga
    Stokes -1 - moved the ball for the first time since puss was a kitten, unlikely ever to do so again and is a ranga
    Buttler 3 - still waiting for him to be hilariously incompetent with the gloves
    Ali 5 - cant bowl a hoop down a hill and trolled us with the bat
    Broad 0 - can bowl a hoop down a hill and trolled us with the bat
    Wood 4 - cheap wickets and seems like a good bloke WAC
    Finn 5 - wickets, 4 balls and seems like a good bloke WAC

    All Australians 0 except Starc who gets 1 because he is tall

    How can anyone describe Moeen as trolling with the bat? And why is he batting at 8? He looks comfortably one of England's four or five best batters at this level. Sure, there are others who have better first class records, but as Hick and lots of others have discovered (and are discovering), there's a huge difference between piling on the runs in county cricket and doing it on the big stage. Some of those currently ahead of Moeen in the batting order either don't look equipped to succeed at Test level (Lyth, Buttler) or are on borrowed time (Bell). Moeen looks like he has so much more time to play his shots than most of his colleagues. Does he have technical issues? Absolutely. Which is why I would be against using him as an opener. But the difference is that his flaws look capable of being ironed out. The lineup would look much more solid with him at five or six.

    Hopeless against the short ball and we keep bowling full and wide because "the ball is swinging."

    He and Broad should've been faced with a barrage of short bowling into the armpit

    Ali is in my mind lucky that there isn't a better spinner in the country. Can't be trusted higher up the order IMO.

    I think he should be batting above Buttler at least.
